David Leyonhjelm says he has been "wonderfully ignored" by the Turnbull government despite being one of nine crossbench senators the coalition needs to pass its legislation.

"I think I've had one phone call from (cabinet minister) Michaelia Cash," he told reporters in Canberra today ahead of the new parliament sitting for the first time.

The pair had agreed to have coffee this week to discuss his stance on the double-dissolution trigger bill that aims to restore the building and construction watchdog.
